Amazing Surf Adventures is hosting Operation Surf Central Coast 2014, October 6th through the 12th. This event is held in support of the men and women whom have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. Severely wounded active duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military who served in Afghanistan and Iraq will take part in an epic life-changing experience at beaches across the Central Coast. Through the healing power of the ocean and surfing, these wounded heroes to whom we owe so much, will overcome challenges and build a new understanding of their life’s potential.
For many participants, the trip to Operation Surf is their first time leaving the hospital since being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, making this unique and highly effective healing tool an invaluable part of their early recovery. At previous Operation Central Coast events, the wounded heroes have been astounded at the outpouring of love and appreciation from the Santa Cruz community and its many volunteers. Several opportunities exist for community involvement.
The help of our local community members is what makes this entire event possible.
When our wounded heroes arrive at the airport to hundreds of supporters waving American flags and holding signs thanking them for their service, it sets the tone for the entire week. Volunteers at the beach, in the water and at other key support roles are an invaluable component of our cause. Click the volunteer link above if you would like to help out!
